EMCD applies to most equipment containing electronic parts which are liable to cause or suffer from electrical interference. The aim of the Directive is to ensure both that equipment does not emit excessive amounts of interference and also that it is not unduly sensitive to it. In this way, it aims to ensure that electrical interference is not a problem.
Conformity with EMCD is normally based on laboratory or on site testing to check that emissions and immunity do not exceed limits specified in standards for specific classes of equipment and environments. CCQS can help to arrange appropriate testing and assist in selection of which standards and test methods are most appropriate.
CCQS can also provide technical advice on electronic design for EMC and EMC conformity for industrial control systems built from third party components.
